As was mentioned earlier, Shaykh Yahyaa al Haajooree – may Allaah preserve him – advised his students to observe patience and that he preferred to preserve the Da’wah and the lessons being taught there rather than get involved in a battle. He clarified that their stance was that they will not betray a treaty with the Rafidah (Shee’ah), but it is they who are the oppressors and they will not stand by while being attacked.

A Sister’s Account of Living in Damaaj

Posted in Hijrah, Seeking Knowledge on April 14, 2008 by fearthedunya

“I was in Dammaaj in 2004. I only lived there for 5 months. I really enjoyed it, masha Allah.”

“…Damaaj is nestled in the mountains and as you reach the last set of mountainsvv coming in, it is a beautiful view as you look down on Damaaj. Spots of green trees sprinkled here and there.

I’ll mention a few things that I think might be interesting for those interested in hearing about the living there. These are my personal observations and experiences, so others’ may vary. Also keep in mind that this was three years ago and things can change very quickly…..


Most of the structures are mud houses. We rented from a very nice Damaaji family (who were not salafi). As I said, my husband was not there at first and the family was so helpful, masha Allah. They brought us fresh fruits from their garden just about everyday and they brought us bread at Maghrib during Ramadan. When we got a motor, they would turn it on every morning for us during Ramadan before we got up for suhoor.

travel-plane.jpgImportant advice for those who may undertake the role of the student of knowledge – those who want to leave behind their homeland, perhaps family, jobs, homes, college studies, or important positions in their communities

In the Name of Allaah, the Most-Merciful, may His Salaah and Salaam be upon His final Messenger Muhammad, to proceed:

Verily from the most rewarding ventures a person can undertake is to pursue knowledge of Allaah’s Deen. The ones who are favored with understanding of the Religion, not only does Allaah want good for them, as the Prophet of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) said:“If Allaah wants good for someone, He gives him understanding in the Religion.” [Bukhari (71)and Muslim (1037)]

Brief Description of Dammaaj, Yemen

Posted in Hijrah, Knowledge, Life Planning with tags , , on February 7, 2008 by fearthedunya

As-Salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullaah wa barakaatuh.


Dammaaj is the birthplace of the Reviver of the Sunnah, the Great Scholar Muqbil ibn Haadee Al-Waadi’ee. The Sheikh set up an institute of knowledge that by Allaah’s will has changed the face of Yemen. Before the da’wah of the Sheikh Yemen was plagued by tashayyu’ in the north and tasawwuf in the south and hizbiyyah.

Now by Allaah’s grace the da’wah of Ahlus-Sunnah can be found in all parts in Yemen, stronger in some areas than others. The institute in Dammaaj started as a small masjid made of mud then as the students numbers grew a bigger masjid was built adjacent to the Sheikh’s house then later a bigger masjid was built which is today the library then an even bigger masjid was built and now that masjid has just been expanded. The latest masjid is very big and is active day and night with classes and students memorizing Qur’aan and hadeeth and at night time some of the single students sleep in the masjid.
